a great weekend. thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. happy friday. what a week this has been. whoever packs president obama's bags is busy. he's going to asia tomorrow. no sitting u.s. president has ever visited the nation of cambodia before, but president obama is about to do so. no sitting president has visited burma either. but president obama is about to go there too. no president has ever done that. when he's there, he will meet with the opposition leader. what is the side note of this historic trip to burma? before the u.s. government decided to send a president to the country, we first decided we were ready to send a rock band to that country. the state department under a brand new president obama in 2009 authorized the great l.a. latin fusion band to go tour burma. a sort of ambassadors for u.s. culture in that part of the world. burma has only finally ended military rule there as of last year. after president obama makes his visit there this weekend, we have now learned we're going to be sending another american musical act to follow up the president's trip. this tim
-organized fringe of radical birthers, the election of a black president doesn't tell us much about the structural barriers that continue to face the vast majority of black citizens. it doesn't tell us much about the narrow arena of electoral arena for black candidates. maybe you've noticed there's not one african-american in the united states senate. we're called 2008 with an open seat race. unpopular wars, a crushing -- a nation that was crashing in terms of the economy and exhausted the with the incumbent george w. bush opened the door wide for a democrat to win. throughout american history, race has been a disqualifier even if favorable, political circumstances. not in 2008. overall, american voters did not -- this is meaningful if imperfect progress. in three days, we'll learn if america's first black president will be re-elected. the conditions are very different this time around. he is the incumbent, the economy is still limping and it may be harder generally to win reelection of our previous 42 presidents. only 16 were elected to two terms. if america doesn't choose president obama again,
-- same question to you, david, why would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this was unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> you know, chris, i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it, i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say, yes, they were bought off that, obama won their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign of big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victims who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what happens, mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. it just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47% rant, and now you have republicans running away from him and basically saying, hey, don't let the car elevator door hit you on the way out. >> let me go
's "hardball" for now. thanks being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. republicans are trying to reinvent their image with minority voters. don't let them fool you. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> we don't win elections by insulting voters. >> republicans continue to insult voters. congressman luis gutierrez and michael steele on the republican chaos that plays right into the hands of the democrats. >>> progressives stay on offense. over the fiscal cliff. >> we're going to make some of our colleagues here an offer they can't refuse. >> republicans just keep laughing. >> it's a joke. a joke. >> e.j. dionne and ruth conif have the latest on the fight for the middle class. >>> richard wolffe on another disastrous day for senator john mccain. >>> and first, it was papa john's. now denny's is serving up a grandstand breakfast on obama care. good to have you with us tonight. the republican party has an identity crisis. african-american and hispanic voters have been told they were bribe by their v
. that information is coming to us from kelly o'donnell who spoke to a veteran senator on capitol hill and, of course, it comes as some tough questions are expected today for president obama. he's giving his first news conference since being re-elected. he will meet the press at 1:0 this afternoon and probably should be prepared to answer some tough questions about general petraeus and allen and the fbi investigation as well as libya, not to mention the fiscal cliff and we're learning more about the woman who knew both general, tampa socialite jill kelley. a senior defense official says the e-mails between the two were more than just calling one another sweetheart, they were flirtatious and unprofessional. both of them wrote letters vouching for her sister in a child custody case and she made this phone call claiming she had some sort of diplomatic status which she does not. >> i am an honorary consul-general so i have unveilability so i should -- they should not be going across my property. but that's against the law to cross my mrort. um, it's involable. >> "the washington post" says there is a new
recognizes is a problem just yet. how long can they continue like this? that does it for us tonight. we will see you again tomorrow night. now it's time for "the last word with lawrence o'donnell." >>> mitt romney got caught once again saying what he really thinks today and in a "last word" exclusive, we have the "new york times" reporter who heard him say it. >> i care about a hundred percent of the american people. >> mitt romney's press conference called. >> it's not their fault, it's somebody else's fault. >> obama, romney argued, had been very generous with black, hispanics and young votevoters. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout, especially in the urban areas. >> paul ryan lost his hometown. >> he lost his hometown -- >> which is not a particularly urban place. >> they voted against him twice. >> losing never feels good. >> president obama will hold his first press conference -- >> to discuss the looming fiscal cliff. >> will the fiscal cliff be the number one conversation piece? >> there's only so much we can say about this fiscal cliff/slope. >> i argued for a balan
hymn standing with a bunch of mannequins they use as a firing range, three of them and then him as the fourth without his shirt on like the manny kins it wasn't meant to be sexual it was meant to be funny. it wasn't interpreted as anything inappropriate according to this person. as for the agent, now that his name is out there, it makes sense about why he called initially a congressman from washington because frederick hump fridays 16-year veteran of the cia, worked in washington state there in 1999, had a big patrol play in investigating the millennium bomb plot against the l.a. airport and he knew the congressman from washington, that he called because that congressman used to be the sheriff there it would make sense he would call that congressman here raentsecently he thought the investigation was stalled. details are falling into place. >> tell me about the house intelligence hearing today. trying to get more information about the benghazi events and general patreaus is meeting with lawmakers in the house and senate tomorrow. >> we are unable to know what is being said becau
the election was you know, well, you know, they elected both the president and us. today they were talking about revenue's on the table. they were talking about, well, we think we can work this out. it was a much different tone than we saw in those earlier statements that we just showed. >> right. well, i ththink they had to sho some toughness for the people in their caucus but they know what the underlying reality is. that helps explain the tone. there's just nothing like winning an election, a lot better than losing an election. you saw that, with all the republicans running away from mitt romney who tried to explain the 47% comment in these latest comments, they just ran away and said that's not us. >> you've had republican leaders out there talking about, do you really want to go to the mattresses over this issue? do you really want to lose the country because you want to fight for these really high bracket tax breaks. >> even "the wall street journal" han editorial, the editorial board at the journal seems to indicate that the gop should take a deal now. "wall street journal." let me
you with us tonight. the republican party has an identity crisis. african-american and hispanic voters have been told they were bribed by their vote for president obama. this is not a winning message for republicans. now or in the future. mitt romney was the big loser for the republican party and he's now thrown the gop into turmoil as he rides off into the sunset. once again, romney was recorded telling his big donors what he really thinks about americans. >> what the president, president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> extraordinary financial gifts. msnbc can't confirm the authenticity of the recording although we do not know when the call was recorded. romney went on to explain why he believes minority voters chose president obama. >> what the president did is he gave them two, two things. one he gave them a big gift on immigration with the dream act amnesty program. number two, put in place obama care which basically is $10,000
he ever wished us to know. jack kennedy, elusive hero is now in paperback. hope you get a chance to get it, read it, and for the first time understand. it's the kind of book you want to read at this time of year especially. we need heroes. we can give thanks that here we truly had one. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the gop's romney problem. there have been some strange responses to the republicans' election loss. but none has been more cynical than that from willard mitt romney. and it has hit his party hard. romney's claim, caught on tape, that the president won the election because of gifts to minorities and young people has made a bad loss even worse for republicans. portions of the tape were posted online, though msnbc doesn't know exactly when the call took place. >> what the president -- president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then
a u.s. president will visit cambodia an myanmar. >> i have been thinking of the multiple ways as he has to focus on so many things at once but he is doing it. thank you so much. >>> the fifth day in the middle east crisis and a potential tipping point. they are waiting for a potential cease fire or ground invasion. the striels flared today. one rocket toward tel aviv. hamas rocketed and struck a home in the town. and strikes from the land, sea and sky. the latest attack killed at least 12 civilians and a bomb struck two media buildings in gaza. they struck a refugee camp. medical officials say three children were killed. netanyahu says israel is preparing for a quote significant expansion of the operation. ban ki moon is preparing for a trip to egypt as discussions are underway for a truce. delegations will arrive in gaza on tuesday. >>> let's get to the scene on the ground. stephanie is live in tel aviv. i understand some sirens were just going off where you are. what have you heard? what would that indicate? >> reporter: this is the second time today we have heard sirens in tel av
tomorrow. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show," from new york. president obama went to bat for the middle class today and mitt romney is still beating up the 47%. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> with respect to the issue of mandate, i've got one mandate. i've got a mandate to help middle class families and families that are working hard to try to get -- that's my mandate. >> the president draws a line in the sand for the middle class. >> the only question now is, are we going to hold the middle class hostage? >> and gets as angry as you will ever see him taking on an old bitter foe. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> tonight, congressman tim ryan of ohio on the president's middle class rallying cry. jonathan alter on the epic throwdown with john mccain. >>> plus, the new senator even nate silver didn't see coming. >> we missed the north dakota senate -- >> yes, you did! >> heidi hitekam
as the president's people told us did end up being demographics and turnout. latinos continue their embrace of the democrats and the rejection of the republicans. the white share of the vote was 72% which was exactly what plouffe, axelrod and mecino told us it would be. we want to break news here. >> we have mugs. we are excited. i'm sure our viewers are excited. >> on a day of big news, this was breaking. >> this is what we care about. no. we get in to the politics of this, what happened, the demographic break down and quickly say what this means for the country. health care stays. it means paul ryan's budget is essentially irrelevant since they weren't able to get the majority in the senate and maybe more importantly i think latino voters made their voice heard loud and clear to both parties in this election and comprehensive immigration reform of some sort will have to be a priority in the next administration. >> you're absolutely right. the gop has to move to the left on the immigration. latino issues. black and brown voters emerged this year as power brokers saying white people cannot
money. >> what did obama give us? oh, bag of weed. >> very serious proctology exam. >> certainly the break in at the watergate hotel was not nearly as important as failing to define a terrorist attack. >> this morning four-star general david petraeus talked before closed door intel hearings on benghazi. >> he essentially is a citizen now and can let it fly. >> he thought all along he made it clear that there was significant terrorist involvement, this and is not my recollection. >> he also knew he was under investigation by the fbi, speaking of general petraeus. that's the big question. >> then the president is saying i didn't know until two days after the election. >> i have to say this, that speculation is absolutely reckless and it has no fact base at all and it really is a disgrace to a man. >> haen days are, indeed, here again. ♪ >> after a hard-won re-election fight, it's been a high-stakes return to the business of governing for the president of the united states. today he hosted congressional leaders at the white house to begin working on what he called the urgent busin
and republicans and so i think all of us have responsibilities to see if there are things to improve on. and i don't exempt myself from needing to, you know, do some self reflection and see if i can improve our working relationship. there are probably going to be still be some sharp differences and as i said during the campaign there are going to be times there's fights and i think those are fights this need to be had but what i think the american people don't want to see is a focus on the next election instead of a focus on them. and i don't have another election. and, you know, michele and i were talking last night about, you know, what an incredible honor and privilege it is to be put in this position. and there are people all across this country, millions of folks who worked so hard to help us get elected but there are also millions of people who may not have voted for us but are counting on us. and, you know, we take that responsibility very seriously. i take that responsibility very seriously. and i hope and intend to be an even better president in the second term than i was in the first. >>
with you all tomorrow night. it's going to be great. thanks for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago tonight, it was actually the night after the '08 presidential election. we voted november 4th. we vote november 6th this time. so november 5th was the night after barack obama had just walloped john mccain in that year's presidential election. you remember the electoral college map. the total 365 electoral votes for obama and only 173 for john mccain. barack obama won that presidential election with almost 100 electoral votes to spare. after that emotional victory on this night four years ago, the country started to appreciate what had just happened in that historic election toward what was going to happen next. now that we had barack obama as not just a candidate or as the winner, but as the next president, as the successor of two terms of george bush. >> elections have consequences. elections are not just the end of the campaign. the concession speech,s victory speech, these are the sounds of a starting pistol for what now begin. it's not just about winning a contest. we'r
of times square, new york city, just getting going. with us on set, msnbc contributor, put that in quotes, it's up for debate what he contributes, mike barnicle, richard haass, chairman of deutsche inc., donny deutsch and cohost of "the cycle," s.e. cupp. it's not really new. >> it's old now. >> you know what i contribute? i contribute some insight into the growing ego mania that is young willie geist. >> yes! >> the 37-year-old sexiest man on earth? >> what? >> oh, wow, we're doing this 40 seconds in, huh? >> "people" magazine. >> getting it out of the way. there he is. willie geist listed as the sexiest 37-year-old man in america. >> i'm titillated. >> it's not just me saying it anymore, it's documented. >> where am i? am i on the right show? >> later today -- >> this is why i got up early? >> later this morning, we are going to have the new editor of "people" magazine here, helen keller. >> oh! >> that's cruel. >> ba dumb bum. >> long setup. way to go. donny's on there, too. >> donny's on the list, too. >> what was it, "50 shades of grey." >> i was in the decaying category. sexy and de
'm out of here. >> thanks to you at home for joining us for the next hour. president obama was in new york city serving damage from hurricane sandy alongside new york governor andrew cuomo and new york city mayor michael bloomberg. in the immediate aftermath of the storm the president spent time in new jersey alongside governor chris christie. mayor bloomberg specifically asked the president to please not come to new york city at that time, so the logistics and security arrangements around his visit wouldn't get in the way of the immediate recovery effort. but now with two weeks or so gone by, the president today announced that he is putting a cabinet official, housing secretary, in charge of the federal level of the rebuilding efforts after the storm. and he made that announcement from hard-hit staten island. >> during difficult times like this, we're reminded that we're bound together. and we have to look out for each other. and a lot of the things that seem important, the petty differences melt away and we focus on what binds us together and that we as americans are going to stand
, not abridged. >> all right. state senator nina turner, thanks for joining us tonight. appreciate your time. crazy stuff happening in ohio. it just starts right up, doesn't it? a week after the election. i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> i'm so happy you had her on. we'll be talking about that later on in this show too. and that t-shirt is one for the smithsonian. >> it certainly is. there's no doubt. >> thank you, ed. >> thank you. >>> thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. in his first press conference after being re-elected to a second term as president, then president ronald reagan was asked if he had anything to say to the people in the country who did not vote for him and who did not feel that they were part of the reagan revolution. he was also asked about nancy reagan falling down and bumping her head right before the election. he said that she had a tender lump on the side of her head, but that she would be fine. in president clinton's first press conference, after he was re-elected to a second term, the president started to answer a question ab
people come over time and time again to say exactly that. what is next? who will come to help us? we don't have electricity. we don't have enough gasoline to run our generators. that's the situation. i brought over one of the residents who is here at staten island. what is next, richard? >> it's difficult to tell. i think we have a mayor who's only concern is manhattan, and we haven't seen a whole lot of help out here. fortunately, my wife and the neighborhood i'm in isn't in bad shape, but there are neighborhoods that are really decimated. it doesn't seem to me like the mayor is doing anything about it. we need gas. we need electricity. i saw two con-ed trucks and haven't seen any more on staten island. nothing is happening out here. we're getting pretty desperate >> reporter: thank you grur time. the best of luck to you in the days ahead. tamron, we're also hearing there's some conflict when it comes to hotel rooms where evacuees have been placed recently because of reservations for marathon runners coming to the city and some hotels having to say we already have guests that are booked
is. there's no doubt. >> thank you, ed. >> thank you. >>> thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. in his first press conference after being re-elected to a second term as president, then president ronald reagan was asked if he had anything to say to the people in the country who did not vote for him and who did not feel that they were part of the reagan revolution. he was also asked about nancy reagan falling down and bumping her head right before the election. he said that she had a tender lump on the side of her head, but that she would be fine. in president clinton's first press conference, after he was re-elected to a second term, the president started to answer a question about the role of first lady hillary clinton in the second clinton term, before he sort of diverted himself into talking about just how damned tired he was. >> well, let me answer the question about hillary. i think what first lady will do is something that i think it will be consistent with what she's been doing, but we have not, frankly, we've been too tired to talk about it. yesterday, i'm emba
escalates in the middle east. what's the u.s. role if it turns into a ground war? we discuss it next. >>> let's make a deal. the latest in talks to avoid the fiscal cliff. should we believe lawmakers will get it done and get it done soon? >>> new twists. the two women behind the falls of america's top spy and how they ended up at the white house on more than one occasion. the saga continues. good morning, everyone, welcome to "weekends with alex witt," we're going to get to what's happening right now out there as we have breaking news on the escalating and deadly crisis in the middle east as it enters its fourth day. overnight explosions could be seen, you see them there, over the gaza skyline. israeli officials say a rocket from gaza injured three soldiers today. israel expanded its air assault, bombing the prime minister's compound and other official buildings. the assault also killed a hamas commander. in israel troops are gathering at the border where many roads into gaza are closed. the military is ready for a ground assault with just an hour's notice, and the u.s. positioned th
have with us tonight. thanks for watching. absence of arrogance. president obama continued his fight for the middle class today and hit back at republican bullies in the process. the president held his first new conference since winning the president once again pipts the first time he's faced the news media without the worry or pressure for reelection. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. if there was one thing that everybody understood was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced responsible approach and part of that included making sure the wealth yet americans pay a little bit more. >> the president's plan with this whole game, with all the card out in the open and on the table. you nome what, think about this, the president could have said i don't want to do that, i think i'm going to cave in today. you don't have to worry ab
went to all-out war there would be significant israeli losses. >> all right, general, would the u.s. get involved militarily if this does escalate? >> i don't think so. i think the iranians would be loathe to actually start firing their long-range missiles at israel. if they did that would be the ultimate red line and we would get engaged. my guess is they're going to cap this in one way or the other. clearly the provocation is coming out of hamas. and they are insensitive to their own civilian casualties. so it's a very tricky situation. but i think they back off at some point. >> you bring up iran. it has been suggested that hamas is triggering all of this back and forth try to divert attention to iran's nuclear program. does that make sense to you at all? >> yes. although i think there's a terrible malignancy in the gaza strip in the west bank and the hatreds that have been generated are literally multigenerational. that's independent. but i think the iranians have manipulated particularly hezbollah but also hamas. they've equipped them with significant amounts of rocketry. one o
before election day. we have with us mike barnicle, senior political analyst, mark halperin, willie's just walked in. i don't know why you're laughing. >> me? >> no, mike. >> this lighting is disturbing. i don't know who did it. i don't like it. i'm just going to say that right up front. but i'm happy this weekend -- today because this weekend there was a huge sporting event that all the world tuned to. and i can tell you i've never been more proud of the vanderbilt commodores, dudley stadium. >> no, they went on the road and did that. they went to kentucky, to commonwealth stadium. sure. 40-0, 5-4. mika, one more win and vandy's bowl eligible. look how excited mika is. >> that's amazing. >> midas. >> laugh it up. laugh it up. >> we are. >> when we're in the music city bowl, we'll see. and by the way, alabama, what a game. >> did they win? >> ha. that was an incredible game. >> that was a great game. and we just want to say, all the great people of the state of alabama, my heart is with you and i love you and i'm one of you, the entire state of alabama just wants to extend our arms
now. >> on a personal note, i want to say one thing about this crisis. as for myself and those of us who work here on this show, we have been very lucky and very blessed this week as this disaster has unfolded in the communities we all live in. everyone on our staff is safe. nobody has been injured. our families are okay. a lot of us have property damage. almost all of us have been living out of suitcases, but we are all safe and that's what's important. i want to thank everybody who has been asking, you're all nice. i want to show you one thing though. look at this video. this was taken this morning by our friend jessica rodriguez who is a producer on this show. most of these nights, she would be responsible for making sure this video made it on air, but today she was at home in new york on long island because this is the street where jessica lives. this is what her neighborhood looks like as of today. four days after the storm made landfall. she was at home today working to assess the damage, clean up her flood-damaged home and help her neighbors. while she was at home, a new york
said is right. the american people are sick of this crap. they want us to concentrate on real things. >> now, wouldn't it be a logical question since it has been stated and confirmed, as you just said, governor, that eric cantor was told about this petraeus situation. wouldn't it be logical to ask did mr. cantor call the white house and say, "what are you going to do about this, are you aware of this"? why are they pointing at everybody except the one congressman we know knew something, their fellow colleague mr. cantor. >> the republican head of the house intelligence committee, congressman rogers, he didn't know. he should have words with eric cantor. why didn't eric cantor tell the republican head of the intelligence committee in the house. >> i served on the intelligence committee for nofour years in congress. this is what gets my irish up. there was a knucklehead who did this video that dishonored the prophet mohamed. >> right. >> there were protests all over the world in egypt, libya, tripoli and may or may not happen 400 miles away in benghazi regardless. but that's what susan
the palestinian rocket fire using aerial attacks as we've seen over the past 48, 72 hours, do you need to go in with a ground invasion? and that is what some people here are questioning. is that the only solution in the eyes of the israelis? certainly from a palestinian perspective they'll say they have the ability to fire rockets even beyond a ground invasion as they did in 2008. >> ayman, thanks so much. >>> we take you to washington where high stakes meetings are under way at the white house this hour. and also on the hill. first though to the white house where the president convened a pow-wow minutes ago with congressional leaders there to talk about the tsunami of tax hikes and spending cuts set to go into effect at the end of the year known as the fiscal cliff. the president offering these remarks just a short time ago. take a listen. >> i think we're all aware that we have some urgent business to do. we've got to make sure that taxes don't go up on middle class families, that our economy remains strong, that we're creating jobs, and that is an agenda democrats and republicans and inde
sordidly delicious not to have us spending, us in the immediate yashgs spending some time figuring out what in the heck was going on here. i do have to say i really think there are a lot of important questions to be dealt with at the news conference beyond the petraeus matter. there's not a lot that the president can say or add to it. i know there's going to be some questions, but, please, can't we drill down on the fiscal cliff which is really a lot more important for the country? >> one thing, though, and, you know, with petraeus back on the schedule to testify again it's closed but hogan, the white house has stayed largely out of the petraeus fray and our own chuck todd saying on his show this morning that the obama administration doesn't really see petraeus as their guy. he served in multiple administrations has the backing of a lot of republicans but with him now testifying before the senate intelligence committee tomorrow is this where the white house could start to feel more the heat? >> absolutely. i mean, look, he was somebody else's pick but he did serve as somewhat of a sense of
house correspondent chuck todd. thanks for joining us tonight. this was a hot pressure cooker press conference and you were in the middle. let's talk about the president's tactic. it looks like he's got one. here he is sticking out his message of defending the middle class today, sticking to it. he practically dared the republicans to hold tax cuts for the middle class hostage. he went back to that word hostage. let's take a look. >> the other option is to pass a law right now that would prevent any tax hike whatsoever on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. i hope republicans in the house come on board, too. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. the most important step we can take right now, i think the foundation for a deal that helps the economy, creates jobs, gives consumersty, which means gives consumers confidence they'll have consumers during the holiday season if we right away say 98% of americans aren't going to see their taxes go up. >> i thought that was pretty well crafted as a tactic. i don't know if it's a strategy.
. the door to a brighter future is open, waiting for us. i need your vote. i need your help. walk with me. tomorrow we begin a new tomorrow. >> wisconsin, that's why i need your vote. and if you're willing to work with me again, and knock on some doors with me, make some phone calls for me, turn out for me, we'll win wisconsin. we'll win this election. >> trouble at the polls. long waits in early voting lines in ohio and florida, but put tempers to the test. >> let them vote! >> the other big wild card, sandy. a week after the storm recovery efforts are still winding slowly through the hardest hit. new jersey governor chris christie who praised president obama's response to sandy repeated his support for mitt romney. sort of. >> on tuesday i'm voting for mitt romney because i think he's the best guy for the job. it doesn't mean that i can't turn to the president of the united states of america and say to him, thank you, sir, for providing good leadership in this crisis. >> and whom do you trust? the grid iron predicts. a redskin hometown defeat favors the challenger but the lsu/alabama ma
from across the country have joined us, have donated, sent food, and we want to say a heart-felt thank you to each and every one of them. let me say, mr. president, thank you to you, because you have empl fied the spirit of partnership and the spirit of community. i was personally amazed and touched by your phonal calls and attention even during times that were very, very busy. you were there for us. you were there for new york. we thank you, mr. president. together, mr. president, we will not just rebuild new york, we will build back better than ever before. ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states. [ applause ] >> thank you so much, everybody. i'm going to be relatively brief. i came up here right after the storm, was on the jersey side, and i promised to everybody that i was speaking on behalf of the country when i said we are going to be here until the rebuilding is complete. and i meant it. so i'm going to come back today, but i'm also going to be coming back in the future to make sure we have followed through on that commitment. i want to thank the outstanding lea
is senior national correspondent for bloomberg business week and joins us now from washington, d.c. josh, it is great to see you. >> good to be with you. >> let's talk about this what i like to term dance of the seven veils that the speaker of the house is performing for us right now or a fan dance, depending on your favorite form of entertainment. at a certain point -- this is evidence of how he has to play cate a house caucus and i think betrays of broader understanding that the republican party needs to come to the table and deal. you seem to think at the end of the day, the real deal is going to be one that the president determines. >> yeah. i think boehner has an extraordinarily difficult thing to do and that is to lead his party and especially the house republican caucus, out of this land of make believe that they've been living in for the last couple years, where obama's a terrible president, romney's going to win in a landslide and they're going to impose the republican agenda. what i write in the cover story if you look at how things have changed on the outside looks like the st
people -- no longer are they the other, people to be joked about, sequestered off as if they're not of us, deeply a part of our american family. yes, i said it, this was a generous election. forget this talk of sharp elbows, every man for himself, grab your tax cut and head out on your own and for your self. all the nastiness we heard only served to excite and energize the people it was aimed at, only served to turn off the people who heard it being said and said to themselves. none of that for me. that sounds like uncle what's his name stuff, i don't buy it, i'm not going to buy it. so we go off, this country of ours, to a new era of hope. a time to work and think and keep on deciding. we ain't going back because as we decided on tuesday, back just isn't what it was supposed to be, was it? joining me is republican strategist john feehery and democratic strategist bob shrum. did you hear that, feehery? >> yes, sir. >> okay. good. the republican party can no longer count on white voters to carry them to victory in national elections. the white proportion dropped two points, from 72 puff --
and gone home. at 12:50 in the morning, romney called to congratulate the president and shortly after used his concession speech to call for national unity. >> i so wished, i so wished that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader and so ann and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. >> just after 1:00 a.m., president obama took the stage in chicago and in an eeb lex cycle that has parsed every line, and smile, it was clear he saved his most powerful oratory for the very end. >> we are not as divided as our politics suggest. we're not as cynical as the pundits believe. we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states, we are and forever will be the united states of america. and together, with your help and god's grace, we will continue our journey forward. >> reverend al, the president rode into office on a wave of hope and change, but i wonder after last night, is the change really, perhaps, for the second te
behind us. as president obama publicly ponders what kind of help mitt romney could offer his team going forward, romney unloads to donors and why he thinks he lost. >>> and if one presidential rival isn't enough, the president butts heads with his 2008 opponent. delivering a tough message to senator mccain over congressional criticism for u.n. ambassador susan rice. >>> also, this morning, violence grows as israel and hamas look to be on the brink of war. we'll have the latest report on the ground. good morning from washington. it's thursday, november 15th 2012. this is "the daly rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get first to my first reads. president obama wanted to spend his first post election press conference showing he was ready to reach across the aisle. instead, he found himself on the receiving end of criticisms from not one, but two former presidential rivals. the president himself was loose, confident and at times aggressive trying to show he's in charge of these budget investigations. also to appear magazine 1/2 muss. magnanimous. he pledged to sit down with his rival governor
governing. >> yeah. let's go to david. why would he use words like this. this is the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. this was unscripted. this is the pure romney. >> chris, i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark and when i saw it i couldn't believe it. maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying to it play up to that crowd, that's what they wanted to hear. now when we hear him talk about voters he didn't just say he was bought off, that obama won their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign of big ideas. so they are the moochers, they are victims who will pay them the most. in the end what happens, mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. so just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47% rant and now you have republicans running away from him and basically saying hey don't let the car elevator door hit you on the way out. >> let me go to one thoughtful conservative. who i usually agree with. he's a smart guy. he writes for "the weekly standard." it seems to me that he has a pretty good point. he says romney's whole campaig
